Kitchen: ideas and solutions

December 9, 2012

Among the domestic space, the kitchen is perhaps one where you tend to spend most of the time. In these pages we want to give some ideas to design and decorate the kitchen according to taste, needs, capabilities and available space.

Wood and glass to divide

The modern kitchen is separated from the living area by a sliding glass door and a fixed panel of the same material. These are separated by a double-functioning element.

Kitchen at all light

The kitchen furniture, arranged in form of letter L is willing to have gloss lacquered beige doors, while the roofs are frosted glass. The wooden floor is cut at 45 ° from ceramic gray tiles gray in corespondency with the working area.

Techno elements

In the past almost exclusively used in professional kitchens, stainless steel is now the protagonist in the compositions of contemporary taste and hi-tech. Hygienic and resistant to impact and corrosion, is offered in various finishes – smooth, striped, satin or brushed – even combined with each other.

A highly strength material

Stainless steel is marked by different acronyms depending on the percentages of chromium and nickel in the alloy. For the kitchen is used steel 18/10 “austenitic” characterized by a particular composition and marked with the letters Aisi 304. This material has high mechanical strength and corrosion resistance and is suitable for contact with food. Lends itself to molding deep, that is, to the realization of elements of complex shapes. For durability, the steel requires a careful maintenance. Daily cleaning should be done with neutral detergent or with soap and water, and do not need to use steel wool or abrasive products.
If the steel is not dried well,it forms streaks and patches of limestone. In some cases, the material may be subjected to painting treatments, which forms a protective film and do not allow to leave traces on working areas.

Contemporary tradition

Suitable for rustic or a tavern, fully kitchen wood is warm and welcoming. Is one with the dining area, which is ideally separated from the counter used as a work surface. The furniture can be completed by the iron candlestick, from tools and pots and pans hanging on the copper grids compartment. And it is designed for moments of conviviality, for example, for wine tasting with friends.

Showcases and cabinets

The furniture of the kitchen are arranged in a U so as to maximize the space. The composition is equipped on both sides with base and wall units with glass doors. The module is flush with the sink under the window, but the valve does not impede the opening because the frame has glass sliding doors.

With free-standing modules

It is inspired by the professional models, steel kitchen consists entirely of free-standing modules. Two container elements next to each other form a single work bench. The objects of everyday use are left exposed in order to have everything near you when you need it.
